Ki Longfellow

Ki Longfellow (born Pamela Longfellow) is an American novelist, playwright, theatrical producer, theater director and entrepreneur.   In Britain, as the widow of Vivian Stanshall, she is well known as the guardian of his artistic heritage, but elsewhere she is best known for her own work, especially the novel The Secret Magdalene ( Eio Books, 2005; Random House, 2007), which deals with gnosis (the direct experience of the divine), told through the Biblical story of Mary Magdalene.   The second of her novels to deal with gnosis, although from a very different point of view, is Flow Down Like Silver, Hypatia of Alexandria.   Longfellow is also the author of China Blues, Chasing Women and the recently published Houdini Heart.

Twinka Thiebaud

Twinka Thiebaud is an artist's model who, along with posing for her father, American painter Wayne Thiebaud, collaborated with many notable photographers of the 20th century. In the work of Judy Dater, one particular photo, "Imogen and Twinka," created in Yosemite National Park, became one of the most recognizable and iconic images captured by an American photographer. In it, ninety-two year old Imogen Cunningham, a groundbreaking photographer in her own right, confronts and locks gaze with Twinka, who appears as a wood nymph frozen before her camera's lens. The image can been seen in private and major museum collections around the world. For three years Twinka lived with the aging novelist Henry Miller in his Pacific Palisades home acting as his cook and caretaker while working as an artist's model, posing for art students and other noted photographers; Mary Ellen Mark, Arnold Newman, Lucien Clergue, Eikoh Hosoe, and Ralph Gibson among others. At home with Miller, Twinka was captivated and delighted along with other dinnertime guests and celebrities by Miller's nightly tales of his past exploits. Listening, she began to keep a notebook of her version of what he said each evening. Eventually showing him her notes, he expressed immense enthusiasm, encouraging her to write a book. The result is a compilation of both Miller's intimate conversations and Twinka's memoirs about the years she spent living under his roof and his lasting effect on her.

Twinka lives in Portland, Oregon.
